7:01am
well, the streets are a little quiet here in new york city, but out in ocean city, maryland, you can see the waves starting to roil up out there. hurricane earl is riding a path up the coastline of the eastern seaboard. and it's causing some problems out there. >> that it is. a lot of people are starting their preparations in anticipation of the problems to come over this, of course, holiday weekend. we have reporters up and down the east coast this morning. and as we say, hurricane earl arrived overnight, bringing heavy rain, dangerous wind gusts as it brushes along the east coast. among the people we want to check in with first is kelly cobiella, who is in kill devil hills, north carolina, where they're really freeeeling the bt
7:02am
of it this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. north carolina was hoping to be waving good-bye to the worst of earl by now, but as you can see, that's clearly not the case. we're still getting wind gusts of up to 40 miles an hour. and this painful rain that's whipping sideways. you can see it behind me. it hits you in the face. it feels like gravel in the face. this really kicked in around 2:00 in the morning and it has not let up. hurricane earl battered north carolina's coast with strong winds and horizontal rain for hours last night. wind gusted up to 70 miles an hour. at one point, more than 500 homes were without power. across north carolina's outer banks, some 30,000 tourists cleared out. but there was no evacuation order for most locals. they boarded up businesses, bought generators and planned to wait it out. >> one day it will come back but
7:03am
hopefully it won't. >> reporter: the big worries from the storm that stretches 400 miles, waves as high as 18 feet. and a storm surge up to 5 feet that push sea water and sand across the roads. last year a storm left 4 feet of sand in bill jones' driveway. >> it was two weeks before i could get into the house to start to clear the driveway. >> reporter: dent look like that will be the case this time around. as far as we can tell the damage -- >> you can see there the storm is right there with kelly because it's affecting our signal, going in and out. we want to turn to dave price watching earl along the coast in ocean city, maryland, preparing for its arrival there. dave, good morning. >> reporter: you can tell that wind buffeting the satellite dish. the winds will begin to roll in here now. we're seeing the winds pick up.
7:04am
waves 9 to 10 feet, expected to grow to 17 feet along the coastline. it's a quick moving storm and pushing eastward. we're talking about a category 2 moving to the north-northeast at 18 piles an hour, 219 to the south-southeast of where i'm standing right now in ocean city. by 2:00 p.m. it should be 200 miles right offshore. the heaviest rain here in ocean city, probably between 8:00 and 2:00 p.m. this evening. tropical storm warnings in effect. tomorrow, a nice sunny day. let's talk about what we expect. this storm rolls up to the jersey shore. you'll see less rain because of the eastern path it's taking, 20 to 30-mile-an-hour wind. long island, you catch a break, no direct hit. 30 to 40-mile-an-hour wind. the hurricane watch now canceled. keep in mind, we still have a hurricane warning for cape cod. it is going to be a rough go for
7:05am
you. there's still some lack of surety on the exact path as it rolls up toward new england. the rain just beginning, the winds kicking up. we have a category 2 storm. the danger up and down the eastern seaboard straight through the weekend is going to be right there, in the atlantic. a dangerous rip current. no one on the beaches here today. erica, harry, back to you in new york. >> good job. up see the seas churning up out there. it has been nearly 20 years since new england has been hit by a hurricane, but earl is expected to pound the massachusetts coast tonight and tomorrow. cbs news national correspondent dean reynolds is in chatham, massachusetts, on cape cod with the very latest. dean, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, harry. well, it's the direction of earl uppermost on everyone's mind here because just a small shift in the course could save the people up here a lot of trouble and money. from long island to cape cod, those on the eastern seaboard awaited word on earl's
7:06am
direction. if it turns west, it could run smack into long island and cape cod. if it heads east and out to sea, $1 billion in damages might not occur. the red cross was storing up supplies and power company trucks were positioned on long island. while on cape cod, they were hauling boats from the sea. >> i think it's going to be over 75 to maybe even 100 miles an hour in chatham, so it's not worth the risk. >> reporter: there may be a state of emergency in massachusetts, but there's no sense of urgency yet. tourists strolled the shower and peered into the distance for an early glimpse of the storm to come. what are you doing to be prepared? >> water, candles, food, ice. >> reporter: and while those along the shore on cape cod are being urged to leave, many are staying put and looking ahead to earl's departure. you're just going to ride it out? >> hopefully it's back to the beach. >> reporter: now, earl may have
7:07am
been downgraded to a category 2, but that that still makes it the strongest storm to threaten new england in 20 years. >> dean reynolds, we hope it stays just like that. erica? >> thanks. more breaking news this morning we want to get to from miami, where the main airport has reopened after being shut down overnight. after a suspicious package was found in a piece of luggage, cbs news correspondent bob orr joins us this morning with the latest. bob, good morning. >> good morning, erica. we can say the holiday weekend is off to a tense started with the latest airport scare in miami. authorities tell us everything is getting back to normal. but for seven hours overnight, four of miami's six terminals were shut down. airport roads in the vicinity were closed, passengers were all ordered evacuated and bomb squad technicians moved in. it started around 9:00 with a security officer spotted something in a checked bag, the luggage screening area, where
7:08am
all the bags are put through explosive detection machines. police went out and located the owner of the bag and took that passenger into custody. now we're told the person is expected to be released and may have been released already. while officials will not say exactly on the record what was found, we're led to believe it was not dangerous. for you, the good news is that this evacuation happened during nonpeak hours overnight. not that many flights were effected. there could be residual delays as operations get back to full speed throughout the day. we'll monitor the situation for you. >> thank you for the update. now, here's harry. >> this morning wall street will be watching the latest unemployment numbers very closely. for any clues to the future for the weak economy. cbs news business and economics correspondent rebecca jarvis also watching this morning as well. good morning. >> good morning. >> what can we expect? >> we're expecting to learn that the economy lost 100,000 jobs overall in the month of august and that the unemployment rate
7:09am
ticked higher to 9.6%. >> there's always a give and take with the economy hemorrhaging some jobs but new jobs being created. where is the give and take here? >> what we're expecting to learn is that private employers, the kind of employers, for example, that cbs is, added jobs in the month of august, 41,000 new jobs there. however, census workers are what are dragging these numbers down right now. 115,000 census workers expected to have their temporary jobs come to the end in the month of august. i should make a significant point here. private jobs are the ones we want to see growing. 41,000 isn't enough. >> many more than that. to, taking all of this into consideration, the jobs numbers, an uptick on the market this week, there's still this sort of a sense out there that the economy is languishing and needs something to really get it going again. >> there is. this report will be very significant as the white house considers additional stimulus,
7:10am
as the federal reserve considers additional stimulus if the report comes out considerably more negative than expect takings, that could mean in the future we will see more stimulus. of course, in this last week we've seen a lot more positive numbers from manufacturing to the housing data. >> yeah, there's a report in the washington post this morning about talk about new tax breaks for businesses and everything else. finally this morning, in items of these jobs, does it seem like there really is finally a tapering off in the job hemorrhaging? >> well, right now employers, as they look at how many employees they have and the kind of work, the output they need to do, the good news is that the number of layoffs they anticipate making in the future is at a ten-year low. so, they expect they need to keep their employees on, their current employees on, just to keep up with the demand that exists right now. >> rebecca jarvis, thank you for your insight. more news with betty nguyen at the news desk this morning. good morning. >> good morning, harry. good morning to you at home. we begin with the new oil rig explosion in the gulf of mexico. the good news, it's not like the
7:11am
bp disaster, but it is just off the louisiana coast. cbs news correspondent don teague is in new orleans. good morning, don. >> reporter: good morning, betty. there were several frightening hours for the crew of this offshore platform, but thankfully, they all escaped the fire unhurt. the explosion and fire aboard the offshore oil platform vermilion 380 were spotted by workers on a neighboring rig. >> we did see the plume of smoke. and that did draw our attention. >> reporter: there were 13 crew members doing routine maintenance on the platform when the fire started. their only escape from the flames, the water. they jumped in wearing life jackets and locked arms for safety, floating together for two hours before being rescued by a nearby ship. >> all 13 members aboard the oil platform have survived with to serious injuries. >> reporter: the first pictures of the fire were reminders of bp's deepwater horizon disaster. but vermilion is owned by
7:12am
mariner energy. it's a oil and natural gas production, anchored to the sea floor in 340 feet of water. it ordinarily pumps 1400 barrels of oil per day from seven active wells. the company says, they're safely shut down and not leaking oil. >> there were no drilling activities under way. this isn't a blowout by any means and no reported sheen or oil or spill around the facility. >> reporter: now officials are trying to determine what sparked the fire on vermilion 380. 200 miles east of the damaged platform, bp is still working on it's blown out well. yesterday engineers removed that temporary cap on the well that stopped the oil flowing finally in july. no oil is still flowing. after labor day they will begin to permanently kill this well from the bottom. betty? >> cbs's don teague live in new orleans for us this morning. thank you. it is being called the largest human trafficking case
7:13am
in u.s. history. six suspects are under arrest and accused of luring 400 people from thailand to the u.s. with promises of lucrative jobs. the laborers were forced to work on farms in hawaii and dozens of other states. in washington, israeli and palestinian leaders left their first face-to-face peace talks in nearly two years agreeing to meet again. cbs news senior white house correspondent bill plante has more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. not only to meet again but to have a framework for peace in just one year. a very ambitious goal for a decades' old standoff. mid east u.s. envoy george mitchell sounded an optimistic note. >> i believe very strongly, deeply and personally, that this conflict can be resolved. >> reporter: but senator mitchell's optimism may be premature. each side faces a divided public at home. for israel, jewish settlers are vowing to restart construction,
7:14am
which is now frozen, in jerusalem in the west bank. and for the palestinians, the radical group hamas refuses to recognize the state of israel and rejects the leadership of the palestinian authority. secretary of state clinton who will attend the mid-september summit, says the united states will be actively involved in the negotiations. >> for our part, the united states has pledged its full support for these talks. and we will be an active and sustained partner. >> reporter: but if mid east diploma diplomacy, there's a crisis lurking around every corner. the settlement freeze expires september 26th. palestinians say if it isn't extended, talks are over. but extending it could break up president netanyahu's governing coalition. >> thank you, bill. embarrassing moment for arizona governor jan brewer is making the rounds on the internet. during a debate the governor
7:15am
suffered through a painfully long pause. >> we have done everything we could possibly do. we have -- did what was right for arizona. i will tell you that -- >> brewer said she doesn't think she'll debate again during it campaign. now let's go back to dave price in ocean city, maryland, and get our first look at the weather around the country. good morning, dave. >> well, good morning to you, betty. we have a mess on our hands. hopefully it's a quick moving one. the rain beginning to move into ocean city, maryland, the birds are even grounded behind me. let's take a look at the maps and see what's happening around the rest of the country. we'll have more on the hurricane in just a little while. keep if mind, temperature will drop back into the 80s in the forth east. that's where we like it. the southeast, sunny and hot with temperatures in the 80s and 90s. the high heat pushed to places

5,000 estimated deaths due to foodborne illness. >> it's serious. probably a number go unreported so the numbers could be potentially higher. >> absolutely. >> so, what is it? where are the germiest, grimiest, bacteria-laden spots we need to clean up? >> basically anywhere you put your hands from the second you walk in your kitchen. remember, you can potentially bring germs into your kitchen before you start cutting. anywhere from the faucet and sink to the refrigerator to the stove handles. everywhere. but these are really the biggest hot spots. they start really with what we use to clean our kitchens, which are sponges. >> this -- i can just say, this is a plea to everyone at home. if you're ever in my kitchen, don't use my dish sponge on the sink or on the counter. it's just cross-contamination. >> exactly. it would be great if you could separate sponge for counters, sponges for your dishes. the easiest thing to do is every day or every other day take your sponge, put it in your mike wcre
7:41am
for two minutes when it's moist. it kills most germs and bacteria. don't touch it when you take it out because it will be hot. >> use clean tongs. >> right. heat kills bacteria. >> maybe a better choice, not the most environmentally-friendly, but a better choice for count tops are paper towels. >> use one, toss it. if you have a cloth dish towel, make sure you wash it in high temperatures, high heat dryer regularly. but if you're using a cloth dish towel, you want it to air dry before you use it again because, again, bacteria love moisture. >> you have cutting boards. this is important. plastic. >> now, listen, this is a jaw-dropping statistic. a cutting board, especially wood, can actually have 200 times more fecal bacteria that a toilet seat. plastic is better than wood. you want to clean it well afterwards. put it in the dishwasher, high heat, soap, bleach, those are the best things.
7:42am
>> you say high heat, soap, bleach and also hand sanitizers. these are things we should use in our kitchen and you ten tills? >> clorox bleach or stainless steel. >> and keep everything separated. and please, stop using my dish sponge on the counter top. >> or like me -- >> or like jen, stay out of the kitchen, order in. up next f you're looking for a new set of wheels, this may be your weekend. there you go. why this could be the best weekend of the year to buy a car.

7:46am
the 2010 models, they want them off the lot. you'll get a great deal as a result. zero percent financing for up to five years so you won't pay interest for up to five years. $3,000 to $5,000 in cash-back incentives. and you also get the best selection at this time of year. later in the year there might be slightly better deals but you may get an unfortunate color or something. >> the color you don't really, really want. >> exactly. >> so, these are the labor day perks. these are the incentives that are out there? >> yes. >> what kind of cars are we talking about? >> almostmy type of car will have some sort of incentive on it as long as it's a 2010 model and they're trying to get it off the lot. the compacts from the ford focus to the chevy cobalt those are looking at good deals because they are coming out with new models. when they have the new model come out, they want to get rid of the old-looking stuff. trucks tend to have the best cash back offers. suvs also in that category. midsize cars, nissan i'm told has a lot of 2010 models, as
7:47am
does toyota. remember all the problems they had earlier this year with prius, this has good incentives. >> this is where car companies make the biggest profits, trucks and suv. i suppose as their inventory is finally coming down, they say, we'll cut you a break. >> it's important to remember, the type of deals, the incentives you're getting from that cash back to the financing, it's coming from the manufacturers themselves. not the dealerships. so the dealership, you negotiate with them on price. the manufacturers have these incentives. >> you have manufacturer incentives, dealers still trying to get as much profit out of every single car. what kind of resources do you suggest we check so we can be armed, as we talked about the other day, with as much information as possible so we really do get the best deal? >> edmunds.com, they talk about buying used rather than new. cars.com has the top ten buys
7:48am
right now for the labor day weekend. and lastly, go to the manufacturer websites, the general motor, the ford, the toyota websites because there they list the incentives. >> here are our websites. >> go there first then the dealer. >> is that your number one buyer tip, do your -- as we always say, do your homework? >> yes. know before you go. do your homework before you head to the dealership lot. once you get to the dealership lot, you want to know the value of your trade-in so you're not just handing over a car and saying, whatever you give me for it, i'll take. you want to know that value. also on top of that, you want to know the incentives before you get there. lastly, negotiate on price with the dealership before you talk incentives. because price is, like i said, where the dealership can come around and you can have a little negotiation. the incentives are set in stone. >> and you can check your trade-in value online as well. thank you very much. for more car buying advice, all you need to do is go to cbsmoneywatch.com. we'll be right back. you're watching "the early show"

8:05am
federal and local law enforcement are interviewing the man right now being detained. at this point no charges have been filed and the man has not been arrested. this canister, which caused the suspicion, has been tested. what we're learning so far, there is no trace of explosives. so, that is very good news. an fbi special agent here at the airport also tells me the man is a u.s. citizen and is cooperating with authorities. again, no charges have been brought at this time. now, this all started about 9:30 thursday evening when this passenger came in on an international flight from brazil and was going through customs. and federal officials detected something suspicious. now, a federal statement that was released tells us, and we have learned, four of the six terminals here at mia were evacuated as a precautionary measure. also, the airport roadways on several parts of the airport were also closed off. however, no flights were
8:06am
canceled. there were three flights that were to come in during this time while the airport was being evacuated. but those flights were simply diverted to another section of the airport. so, right now things are running smoothly again at m.i.a. after the airport was evacuated for about seven hours. and this man, the 70-year-old scientist, is, indeed, right now being questioned. betty? >> thank you. unemployment numbers for august are out this morning. the government report is expected to show continued weak hiring by private businesses. and a sharp drop in government payrolls. the jobless rate is expected to rise to 9.6%. if you have a job, you're probably paying more for your health insurance. a new report from the kaise rechlt family foundation finds the annual contribution for family coverage climbed 14% to nearly $4,000 this year. contributions for single coverage grew 15%. on average, companies pay at

in this morning's "healthwatch," classroom stress. millions of kids are starting a new school year. some are already back. the rest are heading back after labor day. "early show" contributor dr. jennifer hartstein is a child and adolescent psychologist here with advice for all of us to help calm those back to school jitters, no matter what age. and this really does -- i mean, it's normal to be a little nervous. you're anxious. you're excited. you're starting a new school year. could be a new classroom, a new school system. when do you know this is -- this is really a problem for your child more than just the normal jitters? >> right. it's hard to know the difference between anticipator toy anxiety or i'm nervous. if they're crying all the time, they're sick a lot, don't wanted to go. having stomachaches, headaches. you want to start to figure out what's making them so nervous, and it could be the beginning of school. >> if it is school causing these jitters, you've broken this down
8:12am
for us by age. starting with preschoolers. could be potentially the first time they're separating from mom and dad. >> you wanted to try and help them do it as easily as possible. you may not have done this yet, but you want to build in separations as much as you can so they get used to just not being with mom and dad. you want to read with them a lot. you want to give them as much time to start to get ready for school. stay positive as a parent. you mentioned parent anxiety. parents can get nervous. kids will pick up on that. you want to be aware. if you can visit the classroom and get names of classmates, that's helpful so they know what they're expecting going in. >> make it more familiar before they get there. after you've gone through preschool, this is big time, we're going to kindergarten. >> and some of the things still apply. so, you still want to stay positive as a parent and see if you can visit the school and the classroom. the more familiar, the better. you want to focus on cooperation and discipline. how are they going to handle being in a classroom, having to be with other kids, having to follow the rules? also, you can practice reading,
8:13am
math, all those things at home outside of school in really fun ways so they're ready for all the school things that have to happen. >> give them a better idea of what to expect. >> exactly. >> it seems in some ways addition it's easier with your young kids. for the most part they get excited about it but kids going from elementary to middle school, this can be a scary time because of all the changes they're going through as an adolescent. >> preteen, heading into middle school, bullying becomes a bigger issue, cliques become a bigger issue. you wanted to be aware of how that might add into some of their anxiety. talk to them about what to do, who to talk to, who to ask for help. in addition, there are those fundamentals. you want to think about organization. these kids are changing classes in sixth grade. they have to keep different notebooks. time management, how do they get their projects done. how to increase their self-confidence by involving them in things they enjoy. you're not going to put your pee wee in football but he may want
8:14am
to play tennis. help them feel positive in their lives. >> and that will help boost their self-esteem in so many other yaz. you mentioned bullying be a big problem and more so as they get older. i imagine middle to high school, that's a major issue for parents and kids. >> both. it's middle school into high school. it's all middle school. it's really being very careful of that. >> so we look out for bullying and those signs you mentioned earlier. jen, great to have you with us. i'm more relieved already. >> good. >> hope it's an easy transition. we are preparing to welcome usher to the plaza. his music old and new is coming your way as our "early summer concert series" continues. you don't want to miss it. stick around. >> announcer: "cbs healthwatch" sponsored by walmart. save money, live better. walmart. ♪ ooh, ooh ♪ ♪ ooh, ooh [ mom ] walmart checks other stores' prices so we can save on all our game time favorites. aah!

lindsay lohan is taking a step back into the hollywood
8:17am
mainstream. she has a small part in the movie "machete," opening today. nancy o'dell is joining us with more. good to see you this morning. >> good to see you, too, erica. you know, the question that everybody in hollywood is asking, of course, can "machete" cut through all the bad press lohan has gotten this year and can moviegoers separate lindsay's character. >> reporter: the stars rolled up in style for the los angeles premiere of "machete," co-star lindsay lohan's first film in three years, but she was a no-show. >> lindsay was asked not to be there because her personal problems would detract from the actual film. >> reporter: still lohan's filmmakers say her performance in "machete" is a razor sharp comeback. >> she's amazing. >> i can't wait for people to see it because it will remind them, oh, yeah, there's an actress behind all the distractions of the paparazzi. >> reporter: lohan's latest
8:18am
legal troubles began less than a year ago. she showed up more than an hour late to her beverly hills probation hearing. >> the court is also going to -- >> reporter: and it got even worse. in july she was a no show for an appearance and was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 90 days of rehab. she served only a fraction of those sentences. everybody is saying she got off easy when it came to the law. but do you think that she is paying careerwise? >> she's certainly paying careerwise. if she really wants to focus on her career she needs to surround herself with smart advisers, smart people that can help her chose a role that's not a troubled personal backstory so she can achieve that career comeback she wants. >> love yeah. bye. >> reporter: it's easy to forget that before her run-ins before the law she was a much loved star with endless potential. dressed as a nun and toting a gun in "machete" might do little to remind audiences of her skills as an actress.
8:19am
>> in this movie she has threesomes with her mother, naked for a big chunk of time, a scene where her father picks her up from a drug den. it's hard to separate her real life and the acting right there. >> reporter: so you're not really going to be focusing on her performance? >> that's exactly right. >> and, unfortunately, it is hard to revive a film career when it's on what some are calling the hollywood equivalent of life support. as you'll recall, her last movie "i know who killed me" was one of the most notorious flops of 2007. we hope that doesn't happen this go round. >> not helpful when you look at all that. also as we heard from the hollywood reporter, the role itself may not be the best vehicle for lindsay coming back, although obviously this was shot a little while ago. is there one particular role that could help her restart her career? >> i think her advisers are telling her and observers by watching say she needs to remind the public what a good actress she really is. and she really is.
8:20am
lindsey powers with the hollywood reporter suggested doing fallen apart in an ensemble drama then all the focus wouldn't be on lindsay. something that shows an image or emotions. perhaps she would follow robert do downey jr.'s lead. for example, he did "iron man," everybody said that was a can comeback. i think people would be pulling for him. >> and cease continuing to do well. she does have a little something coming up next which doesn't exactly fit that bill, does it, nancy? >> no. doesn't, unfortunately. when you hear this you just go, oh, no. it's not an action role or a role that will remind fans of lohan's more innocent times. she's set to play the lead in a movie called "inferno" which tells the story of linda lovelace. it actually is a role that could show her talents as an actress
8:21am
because she is playing the lead or once again be a role where people can't get past the nudity and risque scenes. we'll just have to wait and see what happens. >> there are reports out that britney spears' old manager is now taking on lindsay lohan's career. what do you know about that? >> i've heard some of those rumors as well. we've seen britney do a little comeback and every now and then we see a misstep again. you would hope whoever is out there advising lindsay will do some of these things we're talking about. the thing we remember about lindsay and everybody is tending to forget her beginning movie and she was this really cute freckle-faced kid we all loved and adored in "parent trap" and we want to see her go back to that and not go through these troubles. you know, the one thing i can say is that sometimes the bigger the fall that you take, the bigger the rise you can make. for lindsay, a lot of us are pulling for her out there.
8:22am
i've certainly interviewed her umpteen times. i have to say, she's a very nice young lady. i hope she gets it together -- >> and as the pendulum swings in terms of sympathy is starting to swing back in her direction. she comes out, does the "vanity fair," talks about -- they say she's really not addicted to prescription drugs, et cetera, et cetera. maybe, maybe, you know -- and i think you're right. people really do love a comeback. >> absolutely. we saw it with britney spears and -- >> you mentioned "parent trap" but also "mean girls," she was fantastic in that movie. >> nancy, thank you. it is interesting because there are days that headlines come up on her story and you're like -- >> not again. >> not another one. >> everybody's always happy to open the door, you know. >> and she's determined, too. still ahead this morning, >> and she's determined, too. still ahead this morning, usher is♪ ♪

it was, they did 500 rescues from the waters right off ocean city. now, keep in mind, there was one fatality last week. that's with a storm that was much further out than this storm will be. so, the rip current is going to be the most dangerous factor as we head through the holiday weekend up and down the eastern seaboard. we can't stress it enough. let's take a look as we head into the holiday, what it's going to be like all across the country. let's go to the maps and bring it up. here we go. the northeast, it looks like we'll finally see temperature begin to drop. the southeast, sunny and hot with temps in the 80s and 90s. across the ohio valley, some scattered showers, some thunderstorms, temps in the 60s and 70s. and cool and beautiful in the northern plain states. the southern plains, where we could see trouble. isolated thunderstorms, gusty winds, some hail is a possibility. and then the southwest, man, make sure you buy a pool. phoenix at 109. vegas at 109. 70s along the loews. 90s to 100s as you head inland.
8:32am
we are continuing to watch hurricane earl, our next big, hurricane earl, our next big, we're watching earl off the mid-atlantic coast. clouds across the metro along the coast, that's where we have the heavy rain and winds gusting 30, 40 miles an hour. some showers making it south and east of town, principal gorge, temperatures in the 70s. we'll see highs near 90. quickly, earl, a category 2, tropical storm warnings in effect from ocean city up to cape cod. hurricane warning for cape cod. winds still 105 miles per hour moving to the north-northeast at 18 miles an hour. that's it from here.
8:33am
bad day to be near the water. in fact, no one allowed in the waters off ocean city today. guys, into you in new york. >> all right, dave. we'll take it. labor day weekend has been a popular time for weddings. it's often a beautiful week en. you could have the wind-swept beach, it's a long weekend. today, though, clear sign it could be a little rough. hurricane earl barrelling up the east coast. lauren cornet and christian are getting married tomorrow in the outer banks. they say no hurricane will stop them. lauren and christian are with us from kill devil hills. good morning. >> good morning, erica. >> good morning. how are you? >> we're doing great. you guys, from everything i've been told, you have a great attitude about this. lauren, you're saying the show must go on and so the wedding is going to take place, is that right? >> yeah. we're going to do what we can tomorrow. our wedding coordinator has been making a bunch of calls and
8:34am
making sure that this will happen tomorrow for us. >> so it's going to happen, but what at this point do you know is going to be different in terms of what you'll see versus what you had planned? >> depending on the level of wind and the amount of rain, we may or may not be able to put up the tent that's going to be on the sound side. we may have to take the reception part into a local restaurant that we have for our plan "b." >> you have a backup. christian, you know you may be missing a few people you wanted to be there, some guests at this point have already said they can't make it? >> yeah. a few of them are stuck at points north. you know, we're still hoping most of them can get in. you know, a lot of them are hovering north of the bridge to get onto the outer banks. you know, this is supposed to clear up by later today. we're hoping that, you know, anyone who's seeing this, you know, still come. it will be okay. we'll be eating outdoors tonight. >> there you go. as soon as you see the all-clear, the party will start. get on the bridge, get on over.
8:35am
this is a special area. people would say, you know, there's -- it's hurricane season. it could be a little dicey this time of year. lauren, i know this area holds a special area in both of your hearts. >> yeah. i mean, my family and i have been coming here since, you know, the mid-80s. we've had our house since 1992, so, you know, it's a really special place. christian and i have been here a couple different times together. so, you know, rain or shine, it's still a special place and it's the place we want to get married. >> you have such a great altitude. lauren, i know a little nightmare scenario, especially for a lot of ladies. did you really lose your engagement ring in the water? >> yeah,dy on monday. we were just, you know, hanging out in about knee-deep water, throwing a tennis ball, you know, pretty harmless. you know, i caught it. my hand went down into the water and my finger was, i guess, at the perfect straight angle and it slid right off. and then there was no way we were finding it. we looked for about 15 -- 45
8:36am
minutes, actually. >> in the surf. you know, we had probably ten people out there sort of combing the beaches, looking for it. the current's strong. it's pretty small. >> is it insured? >> it's like looking for -- it is insured. >> it's beautiful. but it isn't all about the ring. it's about the wedding and the life you two are starting together. you're starting off with a wonderful attitude. we wish you the best, lots of sun for your wedding tomorrow and lots of love. >> thanks very much. >> now it's harry. >> it's been 15 years since usher first sang and danced his way to to the top of the charts. he was only 14 years old back then. now a five-time grammy winner, has sold more than are 45 million records worldwide, usher is now celebrating the release of his new cd "versus" and we're happy to welcome him, performing dj got us falling in love. usher!
